Dr. David Money is a martial artist and licensed Doctor of Oriental Medicine in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He became actively interested in the healing arts in 1977 when he began studying Chinese martial arts under the guidance of an accomplished martial artist. After years of intensive study with several notable teachers and observing the outstanding effects that Tai Chi, herbs, and acupuncture produced in patients and students, he started Catalina Acupuncture and the Mind Form Technology Project which conducts ongoing research into how the mind influences the healing process.
Tai Chi is quickly becoming one of the most popular forms of gentle exercise recommended by physicians to help with flexibility, balance, and posture. Traditional Tai Chi masters observed that regular practice with the correct body posture had the benefit of improving blood circulation and energy, reducing pressure on spinal nerves and joints, and slowing heart rate.
